Europe Automated Material Handling Equipment Market Trends




  • Growing demand in the automotive industry is driving the market growth




The European Automated Material Handling Equipment (CAGR) market is expanding because the European Union (EU) is one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world. Industry is what makes up the majority of private R&D investors. The European Commission proposes to fund research and development to assist worldwide technology harmonization and maintain the automotive industry's technological leadership while bolstering its competitiveness. Furthermore, 569 cars are registered for every 1,000 people in the European Union, according to a survey by ACEA. Latvia has the lowest car density among EU countries, whereas Luxembourg has the greatest density (694 per 1,000 people). Additionally, the OICA projected that 14.16 million passenger cars were sold in Europe overall in 2020. Manufacturers' suppliers are compelled to choose more flexible automation due to the demand-driven nature of the automotive supply chain in the United Kingdom, which involves a growing degree of customization within a car. The automotive sector of the market under study is growing due to this. The demand for digitalization in the Dutch automobile industry is primarily driven by the growing use of automation in manufacturing and the introduction of digitization and artificial intelligence.


Furthermore, the Internet of Things (IoT) is used in Industry 4.0 to build a networked ecosystem integrated into logistics and manufacturing operations. Predictive maintenance, performance optimization, and overall operational efficiency are made possible in the AMHE sector by IoT, which enables real-time monitoring and communication between disparate equipment. Big data generated by automated material handling systems can now be collected, analyzed, and interpreted due to the integration of data analytics technologies. By utilizing data-driven methods, system performance can be improved by spotting trends, anticipating maintenance requirements, streamlining processes, and making well-informed decisions. Thus, driving the Europe Automated Material Handling Equipment market revenue.


Europe Automated Material Handling Equipment Market Segment Insights



  • Automated Material Handling Equipment Type Insights


Based on type, the Europe Automated Material Handling Equipment market segmentation includes Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems, Automated Conveyor & Sortation Systems, Automated Guided Vehicle Systems, and Robotic Systems. The automated storage & retrieval systems segment dominated the market. The capacity of automated storage & retrieval systems to optimize storage density using vertical space in warehouses is well established. It uses automated devices, such as robotic cranes or shuttles, to access and retrieve products kept in bins, pallets, and racks. This makes effective use of the given space possible, particularly in areas with a shortage of available land.


The automated conveyor & sortation systems segment is expected to grow fastest. Automated conveyor & sortation systems (ACSS) are essential to order fulfillment because they move products between the picking and packing phases. Sortation systems reduce the time needed for human order selection by helping to arrange and sequence items for effective packaging and delivery.

Automated Material Handling Equipment Application Insights


Based on application, the segmentation of Europe's Automated Material Handling Equipment includes e-commerce & retail, food & beverage, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, airport, and others. The e-commerce & retail category generated the most income. Retail warehouses and e-commerce businesses can adopt a goods-to-person strategy using robotics, such as autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and robotic arms. These robots autonomously traverse the warehouse to choose products from storage areas and deliver them to human operators for packing.


The food & beverage category is predicted to have the quickest rate. This is due to the high standards of hygiene that must be followed in the food and beverage industry. Automated conveyor systems for this industry frequently use materials and designs that satisfy hygiene regulations for food product's safe and contamination-free delivery.


Automated Material Handling Equipment Country Insights


The largest market share is expected to be in Germany. One of Europe's biggest manufacturing sectors is the German automobile industry. Over 70% of premium brand automobiles produced worldwide are German-OEM built, according to the Germany Trade and Investment (GTAI) agency. Germany is one of Europe's biggest markets for automated material handling systems. Germany has a high robot density (294 units per 10,000 workers), according to the latest estimates from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR). In addition to the automobile industry, the post and parcel sector plays a role in AMH's national success. Germany-based Siemens Postal, Parcel, and Airport Logistics are leading players in the mail sorting systems market world. They are utilizing Siemens technology, over 23,000 systems dependable sort mail in over 60 countries. The company also leads the industry in providing cutting-edge automation, baggage and cargo handling, mail and parcel logistics, and airport logistics products and solutions.
